Rosa 'Summer Wine'

Wow! One of my favorite climbing roses, 'Summer Wine' is already in bloom. So remarkable is the flower which opens as a darker coral and gradually changes in color to a softer pink. The foliage also moves from a lighter green to a semi-glossy darker green.

Now how appropriately is this named as we take our evening stroll in the garden with our favorite glass of wine in hand?
